Perhaps you will recall the old nursery rhyme which goes something to the effect of :
Three men in a tub,
And who do you think they be?
The butcher, the baker,
The candlestick maker,
They all jumped out of a rotten potato!
Turn 'em out knaves all three.
This first shot is of the World War One memorial in Rue, with a fallen soldier looking up to an angel come to bear him away I suppose. In the background above the striped awning you can read the word "Boucherie", or butcher shop. In French, World War One is sometimes referred to as having been "une vraie boucherie" . . . or a real butcher shop of a war. Although nearly all towns in France have war memorials like this one, I'd never seen a butcher shop immediately adjacent to one, providing such a juxtaposition of images. . .
